Pope reaches out to other faiths

Pope Benedict was reaching out to both Jews and Protestants at separate events in Manhattan. In a church founded by German Catholics, Pope Benedict met and prayed with American Protestants.

He spoke to an audience, that included Pat Robertson, of what unites Christians despite their divisions. And he was introduced to a dozen denominational leaders, including Bernice A King, daughter of the civil rights leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King.

Earlier, the pope stopped by the Park East Synagogue on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

He was presented with a Seder plate as he wanted to greet Jewish leaders before Passover.
